Denying Ourselves ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

If we are in Jesus,
to believe and trust
faith in ourselves
we’ll need to adjust.

For when we’re on Him,
completely reliant
than to our own means
we’ll be less dependent.

If we are in Jesus,
to completely obey
than our self-interests
we’ll need to put away.

For to take up the cross,
we must ourselves deny
than to our old ways
we’ll no longer comply.

If we are in Jesus,
to trust and to believe
than through His Spirit . . .
the new man we’ll receive!

~~~~~~

Matthew 16:24

Then said Jesus unto his
disciples, If any man will
come after me, let him deny
himself, and take up his cross,
and follow me.
